A couple of months ago, I lost my full time job and haven't been able to find anything else.   While losing my job, in and of itself, was bad, it has given me more time to craft.  Thus, this afghan was born. 

My grandmother has made every one of her kids and (married) grandkids an afghan with a similar pattern.  I took the afghan I got from her and made a similar one, modifying the original pattern as I went along.  Mine isn't quite as frilly as hers was, but I am quite happy with it.  This afghan is approximately 43" X 65", and is made from Red Heart 100% acrylic yarn using a size I crochet hook.  I spent just over a week working on this.  It is made with a little more than 5 skeins of yarn.  It is the first afghan that I have both started AND finished (I bought a nearly finished afghan at a garage sale this past summer, finished it and gave it to my mom).

Anyway, on to the pictures of this afghan:
